Pro-Gun Campaign Targets Women

The Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) began a campaign of radio ads aimed at women to promote their cause to loosen gun regulations. GOAL is targeting women as well as legislators responsible for the toughest gun control measures in the country.

GOAL executive director Michael Yacino said gun control measures are especially harmful to women, minorities, the handicapped and the elderly.

Massachusetts State Senator Cheryl A. Jacques of Needham, a leader behind the 1998 gun law, said, “I think GOAL is particularly frightened by women. I think this is going to flop.”
